Wiggins v. Lake County Sheriff's Dept. et al
MEMORANDUM Order Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 3/6/2017. Mailed notice (eaa, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
LAKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPT., et al.,
Case No. 17 C 1352
This Court 's March 2 memorandum opinion and order concluded with a paragraph that
explained the need for additional information from prison authorities about the transactions in
the trust fund account of pro se prisoner plaintiff Calvin Wiggins ("Wiggins") to enable this
Court to make the calculations called for by 28 U.S.C. § 1915 ("Section 1915"). This District
Court's staff attorney to whom this Wiggins action was assigned for preliminary handling has
obtained that information, and it has revealed that the deposits to that account during the relevant
time period ending with the February 17, 2017 "mailbox rule" date of "filing" Wiggins'
Complaint (a period of just under six months) amount to an average monthly deposit (see
Section 1915(b)(1)(A)) of $103.97, 20% of which (id.) is $20.79. Accordingly Wiggins is
assessed an initial partial filing fee of $20.79, and the Vandalia Correctional Center ("Vandalia")
trust fund officer is ordered to collect that amount from Wiggins' trust fund account there and to
pay it directly to the Clerk of Court ("Clerk"):
Office of the Clerk
United States District Court
219 South Dearborn Street
Chicago IL 60604
Attention: Fiscal Department.
After such payment the trust fund officer at Vandalia (or at any other correctional facility
where Wiggins may hereafter be confined) is authorized to collect monthly payments from his
trust fund account in an amount equal to 20% of the preceding month's income credited to the
account. Monthly payments collected from the trust fund account shall be forwarded to the
Clerk each time the amount in the account exceeds $10 until the full $350 filing fee is paid.
Both the initial payment and all future payments shall clearly identify Wiggins' name and the
17 C 1352 case number assigned to this action. To implement these requirements, the Clerk
shall send a copy of this order to the Vandalia trust fund officer.
